Ok, for those who wanted an answer to my post about drink cups in a garden....well this morning I saw someone out in the garden that was using them. so I walked down to chat. Had a little communication problem but found my answer. And as some of us suspected he was using them to shade the plant from the hot sun. Didn't however find out if he punched holes in the cups to let the heat out since they stayed on for a couple of weeks. May use his method on some of my new plants next week since they are predicting frost around N. Ga. Growing up we used to make little tents from newspaper or catalog pages, weight them down on the corners with dirt so they wouldn't blow away.
